Carshun Version of the Scriptures

The Carshun, or Arabic in Syriac characters, is used (chiefly by members of the Syrian churches) in Mesopotamia, Aleppo, and in many parts of Syria. A diglot edition of the New Test., in which the Syriac Peshito and the Carshun from the Arabic text of Erpenius were ranged in parallel columns, was published in 1703 at Rome, for the use of the Maronite Christians. From this edition the British and Foreign Bible Society had a new edition prepared at Paris in 1827; M. de Quatremere and Baron de Lacy were the editors. See Bible of Every Land, p. 56. (B. P.)
